I adopted Buck, a desert tortoise, the end of August 2018 and wanted to let you know how he is doing. Buck is now know as Peppe, and he is THRIVING! ! I think he might be a little spoiled…maybe. First, I built his enclosure which is landscaped with some native desert plants and have future plans to enlarge the area. Next, I built him the “summer cottage” an above ground burrow to shelter in. Shortly thereafter I thought he needed something that offered a bit more protection from the cold winters and very hot summers, so I built him the “deluxe” underground burrow, which is where he hibernated this past winter. Peppe has a HUGE appetite and loves the native grass and willow tree flowers (his favorite). He has almost devoured a whole aloe vera plant! I know it may sound a bit strange to some, but this little guy (yes, a desert tortoise) has a personality! He is such a kick! Thank you so much for allowing me to adopt Peppe!
